Alp's class have had a busy week at school. We have been using our outside area once more now the builders have finished. We have been planting potatoes, having fun with our reading on the new IWB and have had Mr Gayson treat us to a Marine bootcamp.

We have had a lovely start to the new half term. The children have been busy learning their sounds and letters, going on shape hunts around the school and using our new white board! We have been enjoying playing in our new airport role play too. Thank you again to all the parents who came to our class celebration afternoon on the last Friday before half term.

It has been a busy week in Alp's class. Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonics workshop. I hope it helped you to understand how phonics is taught in the school. The children have taken their maths learning outside this week. We have also been constructing diggers out of bricks, changing our writing area and performing digger poetry to the children in the school. Have a wonderful weekend and see everyone on Monday.

In our PE lesson we have been learning about how exercise keeps us healthy. We have been feeling our hearts before and after physical activity to see how they beat differently. We have also been learning yoga!

Outdoor maths

 

In Maths, the Year 1 has worked hard to get to grips with teen numbers, as well as addition, while Reception has focussed on recognising numbers to 10. We have also had lots of fun measuring doors that mysteriously appeared on our tree overnight and finding out which one was the biggest cuddly toy on a trip to the nature garden.

 

 

 

 

Autumn 2016 Class Newsletter

Alps class has children from Reception and Year 1. We follow a broad and exciting topic curriculum. Our class is a lively and engaging environment where children learn through play.

 

        

Our teacher is Mrs Heuer-Evans

Our Topic for Spring 1 is:

Transport

Our Topic for Autumn 2 is:

We are Great Britain

This half of the Autumn Term we have spent time looking at traditional tales during our literacy sessions. We have then used the structure of these tales to help us write alternative endings or to include new characters.

At the beginning of this topic we all took a trip to Exeter's Northcott Theatre to watch 'The Snow Dragon'. For some of us this was the first time we had ever been to see a theatre production. It was brilliant and we just couldn't wait to get back to school to write all about it.

Alps Class used all of our acting skills this year to perform a truly spectacular Nativity. 'A Miracle in Town' dazzled the teachers and all of the parents. The children sang beautifully, and learnt all of their many lines. Well done!

 

Our Topic for Autumn 1 is:

Magical Me

We have enjoyed settling in to school life in Alps Class and exploring our topic. We have read lots of stories as a class and a strong favourite has been 'Room on the Broom'. We have been comparing our heights and even sorted ourselves from the tallest to the shortest. We have also made magic potions in the outside area and tried to only use full or half cups of our ingredients. This term we are covering animals including humans in our science sessions. We have been exploring our senses and thinking carefully about which part of our bodies we use in order to see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

We were very lucky and got to go and visit Darts Farm where we learnt lots about the vegetables that grow in their fields and were even read the wonderful story of 'Spookley the Square Pumpkin'.

Take a look at our photos to see what else we have been up to.
